I'm important too
Saturday, May 08, 2010
Today I received a message from a young lady who has touched my heart and really made me re-focus on my healthy lifestyle.
She told me she was a special needs child whose mother had always put her daughter's needs before her own. Sadly as a result, her mum is no longer with us and she cannot support her daughter through her journey.
The thought of not being here for my children breaks my heart. They rely on me so much and I have always put their needs ahead of my own.
However, now is the time for me to re-focus on me, not just Mummy but Debs. Debs is a great woman who hates letting anyone down and is always there for her friends. She is supportive to others travelling the same path and gets a real buzz out of helping someone. Debs is worthy of some time for herself and is worth a bit of pampering.
I've got to start looking after the whole me. I am fed up of looking more crumby mummy than yummy mummy. So I am going to clear out my wardrobe today and get rid of those fat clothes (that I've kept in case I put weight back on) and I have ordered some Bare Minerals foundation. I have been using a cheap tinted moisturiser. But at almost 40, I need a bit more help to look like a natural beauty, lol. This foundation is not cheap but it is great and I deserve it.
Thank you for the email, it has really made me realise what is important. My kids are but so am I.
